Sometimes someone does something that makes you want to crawl in a hole of embarrassment for them and sometimes you watch a recording or listen to yourself doing or saying something that makes you question every choice you've ever made. Hearing someone bomb a joke at party? Cringe. Watching someone at a restaurant hand a server an empty plate and say, "I hated it?" Cringe. Getting completely shut down when you go out on a limb and make a grand romantic gesture? Cringe.
When a recent Reddit user asked, "what things REALLY make you cringe?" people were ready to share the moments in life that send them directly into their shell.
